GST Implementation in Malaysia

The Malaysian government has replaced its former tax system of SST (the Sales and Service Tax) with the new GST (Goods and Service Tax) system to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the country’s taxation system.

Goods and Service Tax system is a transparent, effective, pro-business, and efficient tax system that has the potential to improve economic growth and increase global market competitiveness. Also, since it is not that vulnerable to the fluctuations in the economy, it has the capacity to generate a stable revenue source.

Furthermore, GST has also been introduced by the Malaysian government to overcome the problems related to the existing Sales Tax and Service Tax system such as value shifting, compound effects, transfer pricing, classification problems, no proper relief on the goods exported and cascading.

The GST rate in Malaysia is nearly 4 percent while the registration threshold is 500,000 MYR per year. It is important for businesses, both local and foreign, that have taxable supplies of more than 500,000 MYR, to register with and implement GST. However, the scope and complexity of GST requirements often makes it difficult for companies to correctly implement this tax system. And do you know that incorrect system implementation can not only negatively impact your accounting functions but also have implications on other business processes like procurement, sales & management, supply chain, etc?
